The official Twitter page for this year’s live-action remake of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast has announced that recording artist Celine Dion will sing a new song, titled “How Does a Moment Last Forever,” for the film.

Dion and Peabo Bryson won a Grammy for Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal for their rendition of the title song for the original Disney animated movie. (Viewers may remember hearing her version under the credits of the movie.) That performance essentially catapulted the Canadian-born singer to American fame—although she had already been recording for years. The song become her first top-ten hit in the U.K. and her second top-ten hit song in the U.S. Dion used the song as her lead single on her 1992 album, Celine Dion. Including her statuette for Beauty and the Beast, Dion has won ten Grammy Awards.

The song also won Best Original Song for Alan Menken and Howard Ashman at the 1992 Academy Awards. “How Does a Moment Last Forever” for the 2017 movie has not yet been released.

Beauty and the Beast opens in cinemas March 17, 2017.
